In Egypt, since the beginning of June, 90 Christians were kidnapped by Muslims, some for ransom, and some for conversions to Islam. In the situation in which a ransom was demanded, some of the families payed the money, and the Muslims took the money and slaughtered mercilessly their Christian captives anyway. According to one report:
A mob of Islamists burned down several Christian-owned shops in southern Egypt near Luxor, according to Jewish and Israel News.
The arson happened just hours ahead of the trial of Kyrolous Shawky, a Christian in southern Egypt who has been charged with blasphemy and contempt of Islam for simply liking a Facebook page.
Despite the overthrow of Mohammad Morsi, Egyptian Christians are still being disproportionately targeted by blasphemy complaints from Muslims; nearly 40 percent of the defendants in blasphemy cases are Christians despite that they only constitute about 10 percent of Egypt’s population.
Islamists are also abducting Christians for ransom, or conversion to Islam. Bishop Macarius of El-Minia said that since June there have been 90 kidnappings of Coptic Christians, some of whom were killed even after their families paid their ransom, according to Halim Meawad, the co-founder of Coptic Solidarity.
Last August, Muslim Brotherhood supporters attacked more than 200 churches, businesses and homes, killing at least seven Christians and injuring hundreds more.
The situation for Christians is absolutely nightmarish, not just for Egypt but for Pakistan. Our Pakistani contact has written that in the last past 13 years, Muslim jihadists in Pakistan have butchered 60,000 lives:
Terrorism in Pakistan has become a highly violent reality in recent years. The annual death toll from terrorist attacks has risen up to approximately 60,000 in last 13th years.
We as Christians are obligated to help brethren in the East who are being killed everyday by the Muslim devils. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO MAKE A DONATION TO SAVE CHRISTIAN LIVES IN PAKISTAN, SYRIA, IRAQ, AND SOMALIA
